At least one Springettsbury Township supervisor thinks a planned new fire station should be named in honor of a former chief.
Supervisor Julie Landis made a motion to name the soon-to-be-built fire station on Commons Drive after Glenn Kline.
Kline died March 3 at age 83. He served as fire chief from 1971 until his retirement in 1995.
In making her motion, Landis added that she had been opposed to building the new fire station but the other supervisors had "gone ahead and approved it in my absence."
After her motion died for lack of a second, Landis offered to read aloud the biographical information of Kline.
Board member George Dvoryak said he wasn't opposed to the idea but he wasn't prepared to take action on the motion Thursday.
Pushed by Landis, the other board members also said they weren't opposed to the idea in principle but weren't willing to take that action without consulting the York Area United Fire and Rescue and volunteer firefighters.
After the meeting Landis said she plans to reintroduce the idea at future meetings.
"I think it's very appropriate to name the building 'Chief Glenn O. Kline Memorial Fire Station,'" she said.
The new $4.2 million fire station is expected to be completed early next year.
